Will Good Morals Save?

Isn’t the point of the Parable of the Two Sons (aka: the Prodigal Son) that God is welcoming to sinners? That he loves to welcome into his Kingdom tax collectors, prostitutes, and the worst sort of people.

The Gospel isn’t Good News that people who “live right” are in good with God.

It’s really quite different. Imagine the worst person you know, the worst sort of person you know of. That person, repenting and turning to Christ in faith, is welcome where the most upright Moralist (who trusts in his own “good works”) is not.
